A Starting Point Class offered Spring of 2019. Meeting Sundays at 10:15 and on four Thursdays.
WHAT: We’ll look at many topics in Scripture all centered around growing in our hope in Jesus. The Growing in Hope class is a Starting Point class which can be taken by those interested in membership at Rock of Ages.
WHEN: Sundays 10:15 to 11:10. (see schedule below) We’ll start about fifteen minutes after worship and finish before 11:10 each week.
HOW: The Bible itself is the textbook and we’ll provide you with a study guide. By the end of the class, you’ll have a good grasp of the main message of Scripture: that God loved you enough to save you! You’ll also have the ability to read (and understand!) the Bible. Most importantly, God promises that growing in our hope comes through his Word.
WHERE: In the fellowship hall at Rock of Ages
WHAT DO I WEAR? Please dress however you’d like!
WHAT TO BRING? Nothing! Rock of Ages will provide the study guide, pens, and Bibles. You can, of course, bring your own Bible. We’ll also provide light refreshments!
WILL WE MEET EVERY SUNDAY? If you have to miss a session or two along the way – which is very likely – we can make that up at your convenience. We won’t meet some days and will also meet four Thursdays. See the calendar.
IF I TAKE THE CLASS, DOES THAT MEAN I HAVE TO BECOME A MEMBER? No, it doesn’t. When the class is over you may want to join, but you don’t have to.
I’M INTERESTED, BUT I’M NOT SURE! Well, why not come for the first few weeks and check it out? Grow in hope!
